It could just be a loose belt. Check to make sure they are all tighten properly.

You can see if its a pully by spraying a little lubricant one at a time and see when the squeak goes away.

To determine if its a belt or pulley, take off the belts and fire it up <not for long though>and if you still have the squeek could be a main bearing?

Without ramming a hole thru your head get a wooden rod like 1/4" or so and put it to parts and your ear. The sound/vibration goes right up the shaft. Put your ear near the end of it and you'll know where the sound is loudest. But definately don't put it right up to the opening of your ear area. That would be when the engine misses and torques the rod thru your head. Murphy was right. Don't forget to check next to the valve covers to eliminate that area.
